Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (concussion) returns to practice

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Texans star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins returned to practice Friday after being under the mandatory NFL concussion testing protocol this week.

Under NFL rules governing concussions, players are required to pass a baseline neurological exam before they’re allowed to be medically cleared to return to practice.

Hopkins got hurt Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, but didn’t report feeling any symptoms until Monday, when his community event at NRG Stadium scheduled for that night was postponed.

Fantasy Impact: 

The article doesn't state if Hopkins has been completely cleared, but his return to practice is a very good sign for his Week 3 availability. The matchup against the Buccaneers is favorable.
